3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flache Flasche: Golden to deep golden, a bit hazy, stable and creamy white head, distinctive herbal-grassy traces in the bitter and fruity nose; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, quite dry and light to medium bodied; dry, tart and prettily lingering herbal-spicy finish, some bisquity malt serves as a counterpart. Hats off! An unexpectedly well crafted Lager from good old England…
